    Hello. I just recently purchased a Nikon D80 and this is my first serious camera since my old nikon 35mm's so I'm a little out of the loop in terms of the various advanced settings that the D80 has. I have read the manual and done a few shoots with my camera but I really need a guide with the settings to make sure I get optimal performance.

    Could someone give me a basic rundown on setting up my camera for the basic and advanced settings?:hugs:

    Welcome to the forum.

    99% of the settings & controls will be basically the same as on every other DSLR camera.

    Is there anything more specific that you want to know about your camera?
